The Town Hall toilets are the centre of Dan's world, and for a quarter of a century he has guarded their spotless confines with the jealousy of a mother hen. Above is the Town Hall, an awesome place of bureaucratic splendour; below, Dan, with his assistant Ali and the shifty 'Sergeant', spin out their eternal triangle in a love/hate relationship which provides the basis for this comedy series.
